MORE SOLAR POWER COMING TO WALLOWA COUNTY

The sun is soon going to power more things in Wallowa County. The Park Street Solar project will soon go solar, after the Energy Trust of Oregon awarded a $10,000 grant to Wallowa Resources Community Solutions in partnership with Fleet Development for a pilot project that helps low- and moderate-income Oregonians benefit from solar technology. Project developers also expect to receive a $39,000 grant from the USDA’s Rural Energy for America Program in the coming weeks.
